Electron Geometry and Molecular Geometry

Postby Celine Hoh 2L » Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:06 pm

When the question asks for the shape, can I just give the molecular geometry, or do I have to give both electron and molecular geometry?

I would just have both on the paper just to be safe but for the final answer, definitely go with the molecular geometry

You will need to write the molecular geometry only.
